A carbon resistor

Photographers Direct were requesting image of different types of resisters. I contacted a local teacher and borrowed a whole set from physics lab rehostats to small carbon resistors (as shown here).

2015 Update:
None of the images sold via photographers direct, however several of them DID sell some time later via Alamy. Resistance is NOT useless!
